, if there's any special flavor here, virginia depends on defense to a greater degree in than any other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on federal spending, because governmental employment is so important, not just in northern virginia, which borders on d.c., but also in hampton roads, the hampton roads area off virginia beach and the surrounding localities. host: what are the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most larger population states, there are many states in one. you have northern virginia, which is about a third of the state's population, now produces 30% of the vote, if not more. that has a low-debate. that particular population is national and international in scope. it is the highest income region. it has the people with the highest educational levels in the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to and tidewater, roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is both white-collar and blue-collar, also has a large african-american population. and it also ha
to cut tax rates and pay for it by closing loopholes. two. he wants to increase defense spending by about $2 trillion over ten years. and three, he says he'll balance the budget at the end of his second term. let's start with the tax cuts. >> i want to bring down rates. want to bring the rates down, at the same time, lower deductions and credits so we keep getting the revenue we need. >> romney's across the board tax cut of 20% is $5 trillion worth. now, romney plans to close loophole to pay for it. we just don't know which wups, so we had to take some liberties on the map here. the joint committee on taxation did one test study and i have it right here. keep in mind, this was done based on current law, which assumes the bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year. they concluded that revenue neutral tax reform would permit a 4% decrease in all ordinary income tax rates. now, that's not close to 20%. now, let's get to the second thing. adding more than $2 trillion to defense spending. according to analysis conducted money, romney will add $2.1 trillion in defense spending over a decade. n

romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others
now look to the future and look at a new defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are and the defense strategy, i also remind everyone that we are also going to be downsizing during this time. the army, who at the beginning of calendar year 2012 was 570,000, will go down to 490,000 in the active component by the end of 2017. we have significant deployed commitments. we are downsizing our army, and we are now looking to the future. one of the main thing is we have to do is ensure we have the right mix. i always talk about my three rio stats that the secretary of army and i pay a lot of attention to. end strength, modernization, and readiness. because in general terms those are the drivers of our budget. we have to keep those in balance. we want to learn from the lessons of future -- past draw downs. some of the lessons is you can't get out of balance. because if you get out of balance you start to have an unready army. which leads to a hobbled army. we talk about task force smith and its impact and unpreparedness as was asked to go into kor
? that is right, i said stonewalling, is it a cover-up, i talk with former defense secretary, do donald rumsfeld at that, next. ♪ lou: well, let's turn now to developments on benghazi. the white house tonight denying reports it refused to rescue american diplomats in benghazi. the obama administration resisting responsibility, instead blaming the intelligence community for false statements and contradictions. cia director david patraeus director stood up for his agency and his people saying, no one at any level in the cia told anybody not to help those in need. we talk with former defense secretary donald rumsfeld who serve for u.s. presidents, and i ask him about the unusual patraeus statement. >> it is not that unusual if you think back about a week ago when statements out of the white house and the administration seemed to suggest that the intelligence community has been deficient in their work and seemed to be throwing the cia under the boss a little bit. and this reaction back from the cia is, i think possibly reasonably predictable even though as you suggest, it is unusual. lou: in the c

occasions they were told to stand down and to not go in there. defense secretary leon panetta said we simply didn't have enough information for individuals to go into that zen. what do you make of all of this? >> we're in the stage now of conflicting explanation by the administration. we are long past the point of confusion about what happened on the terrorist side. we know it was a planned terrorist attack. this mohammed video explanation which was always foolish is out of the picture. but now the administration is saying different things. this fox report about the cia denying additional help telling its agents there to stand down was contradicted yesterday by the cia itself. so general petraeus is saying it wasn't the cia who denied the request for additional assistance, implying it was somebody at a higher level of authority. and the point you make about defense secretary panetta is also important. jason chaffets, congressman from utah said last night on the hannity show that he spoke with general carter ham, the commanding general of the after infantry -- africon. he said i was never ask
there is a bser, i can tell. president obama is rattled on the defensive. he's running on empty and has nothing left but attacks and insults. with just 11 days ago before election day both camps feel the pressure. likely voters favored romney over the president by one point in a "abc news" washington post. and five points in in the latest gallup tracking poll. an american research poll showed the president with a two-point edge. we should know next week whether the singer meat loaf at a rally last night shift the balance of weight in that key state. a purple poll gave thethe one-point engine in cool and showed him tied with romney at 47-47 in virginia. the republican-leaning rasmussen gave obama a two-point lead over romney in florida. david axelrod still seems confident of a obama win leaving romney to place to go. in my view we have got the lead and the ball. the question is how does he change that now. maybe so, but the job numbers that come out the friday before the election still have the potential to change the dynamics in this very tight race. for administer on this speech the every tigh
to increase defense spending or put it in our economic debt crisis. it's a pretty good distinction. but to what end? the debate was supposed to give you a framework on what the president would do with foreign policy and we didn't get a lot of that. gwen: molly, you've been going out on the actual campaign trail with people who are door-knockers and so on every day. i wonder whether these issues we talk about in our little hothouse in washington come up when people are trying to get voters to though -- show up to vote? >> they do. it's easy to say voters don't care about x, y, or z but voters are smarter than we think and they pay attention and are processing all this in a very careful way. one woman in florida said the reason she's still undecided is she has all the debates on d.v.r. and wants to do her homework. gwen: what? what? that sounds awful to me! >> i know. but there was tremendous earnestness. a lot of the undecided voters are people who legitimately see validity in both candidates' views and are really looking fob for that trust factor the gwen: how much? about undecided
the minute it happened that includes the secretary of defense chairman of the joint chief secretary of state national security advisor et cetera the deputies committee the second in command at the relevant national security agencies met at least once and more often twice a day to manage the issues. republican senator john mccain says when you add all of the evidence up the administration must have known all along this 9-11 attack was not spontaneous. >> this was a classic scandal where almost every day or every few days the shoe drops. i think it could be bad as watergate. one of the veterans said yes but nobody died in watergate. they have a point. >> jay carney said yesterday the president is anticipating the result of an fbi investigation. >>> peter doocy, thank you so much. more on that through out the morning. >>> the big story this morning people up and down the east coast surveying the damage left behind by hurricane sandy. the death toll right now stands at 90. it could go even hire. more than 4 million people remain in the dak. most of them in new york and new jersey. the loss of po

who choose to drive. it is getting longer in new jersey and new york. the defense department setting up emergency mobile gas station. there is a limit 10 gallons a person. mayor bloomberg said it would be a big relief. >> i am optmistic in a couple of days, the shortage will disappear and relatively quickly. it takes time to get the fuel from where it start to where we need it >> that is it what words fopt is hear. quick, quickly david lee miller. so many people there first feeling forgotten and now up close we see what they are dealing with. >>ers are tough and those new yorkers who live in staten island are among the toughest. there is a sense was solidarity and people sticking together in great adversity and there is a special donation center that is now in operation and at this particular location, staten ilaners are helping one another. those who have are giving to the have nots and bringing food and water and clothing. >> and also on staten island. fema and the red cross and other agencies, some of which were critized by authorities for not coming sooner. staten island hardest
of sitting on a lead. there's a way in which the president has been too defensive, too reticent in his demeanor through the campaign. and if you pull the camera back and look at the last couple of months, there's no question whatever the momentum factor is in these last few days, no question that over that broader period, there has been momentum toward romney. and people he was not really close challenger, he is now. and i think that factor is there. and you can just see it. you can see it in his body language. chris: i can see what obama is trying to do. he's trying to remind people of all the stakes in this election. if you get, for example, george w. bush elected over an al gore it makes tremendous impact. you go to war perhaps. >> and katty's point, does that get the people skiletted in 2008 by this hope, change message and by obama as the candidate as excited as playing to the fear that -- especially playing to 12 years ago, i'm not so sure. chris: ok. >> i agree with that. if at any point obama had said here's what we're going to do and it's really exciting, over the next four ye
